an end to such behavior. >> thank you very much. there was a rally in support of the united states in front of the white house yesterday. muslims from libya came out to say only extremists hate the united states. they held candles and talked about the impact of this week's deadly violence. inspired by a similar demonstration supporting ambassador stevens last night. the incidents overseas raise the issue of the cultural and social divine between muslims, christians and people of the jewish faith. we're going to explore that more in our next hour with a board member of the muslim society. >> over the past day we've learned more about this antimuslim movie which has sparked this outrage. it has called innocence of muslims. it had been written and directed by an israeli american. but both in the u.s. and israel have turned up nothing. antimuslim act at this visit who says he served as a consultant says he spoke with him yesterday and he was concerned about what happened to ambassador stevens. some actors in the film say they were misled about the movie and claim some dialogue was dubb
, or is this something much deeper, a long simmering distrust of the united states? >> it's all the above. it's much long-simmering resentment of the united states. it has some legitimate reasons, but it's essentially a pretext, and it is not really about religion. it's about politics and world power. it's about what's taking place in these countries that are going through a tremendous complex, painful transition. take egypt, for instance, extremists and islamists with different interpretations of islam competing with the mainstream islamist group in egypt which is the muslim brotherhood. >> right. >> they whipped up frenzy against the movie initially, and then the president, who is very cynical, was looking to protect his flanks so he called for more monstrations instead of containing the demonstrations or condemning them so what you have is a competition in egypt as to who is going to shape the future of egypt, and using this movie as a pretext. >> which raised the question. is this about the united states really a all, or is this about uncertainty in these people's own futures and their religious lead
and burned the american flag. they are angry at a film produced in the united states that insult the prophet mohammed. let's get more from doug luzader live on capitol hill. >> good morning. as you mentioned, the u.s. ambassador apparently killed there we are still waiting for confirmation from either the state department or the white house. they are only saying that one u.s. staffer was killed. but if this is, in fact, triewrks it represents a dramatic escalation in the situation there. chris stevens, 52 years old, a u.s. aim bass done to libya. he had been a key player in the region for some time. he worked to help the libyans overthrow qaddafi. he was in no way connected by this video produced by an american here in the united states. he was nevertheless caught up in in violence. we have seen that violence break up in libya and in egypt. there is concern that violence might spread. >> in this particular attack in libya do you know, i heard reports of gunfire, rocket attack. do we know exactly what happened? >> you know, as far as the specifics, we don't. that's why we are waiting for conf
was the president of the united states. >> as i understand it, a call for d.c. statehood is not part of the democratic platform this time around. have you -- what are your feelings about that? have you been able to express any concerns to the dnc chairwoman? >> actually, for the first time, all of the elements of d.c. statehood for the first time ever are in the platform. the platform says that the district of columbia is entitled to full and equal congressional rights [ indiscernible ] the economy and to a local government with no interference from the house or senate. that is the sum total of statehood, the words statehood for technical reasons -- i hope it's only for technical reasons -- are not in the platform but we have never had statehood spelled out in this way in the platform before. so that is not a real grievance this time of the we would like to get actual word "statehood" in, but in many ways it's more important to spell out what it means. >> so i may be being a bit too picky then because of the word statehood is not there. >> you're not. there are, of course, some peop
in the united states. so i want to see what the class thinks about some of this stuff. is this going to help or hurt the president? and what's this going to do with mitt romney given how he's entered into this political issue? >> reporter: so you have heard from the professor. now we are going to give him the mic and let him talk to the students as he teaches his class about this issue. i'm going to get it from you in a second. >> so comments from people. what do you think? what's your first take on this particular issue? is this going to redound to the president's benefit because he is going to show leadership? does it hurt him because things are spinning out of control? some people said there's a potential for a 1979 type of perception when jimmy carter went down the drain on the whole hostage crisis? or is this going to hurt mitt romney more for politicizing? so any thoughts? go ahead. >> i think it has a strong potential to weaken mitt romney's campaign especially with the comments that paul ryan made about tying the defense cuts with the situation that's happening in libya. i think it l
